#ItIsWell {Week 35}

It's been a difficult week, for a multitude of reasons. Over and over, I have found myself going to Scripture and old hymns for encouragement. I have several favorite hymns, including Amazing Grace and Great Is Thy Faithfulness, but my all time favorite is It Is Well with My Soul, and has been since I was a little girl.

When I shared a line from it on the Busy Nothings Facebook page this week, a friend mentioned that she had once heard the backstory of It Is Well, but she couldn't remember it now. I pulled up a video of it to share, and was struck by the fact that if Horatio G. Spafford could say "It is well...", then so can I.

For the example of the Spafford family and Horatio's faith

That I can, indeed, say It Is Well, no matter what the future holds

A surprise phone call from a sister

That God chooses to use me for His glory, even when I'm feeling unusable

For Amazing Grace

What are YOU thankful for?

  1. Thinking of you. It is quite incredible that Spafford wrote that song out of everything he had been through.
